The High School Report: The Placement, Performance and Persistence of Recent High School Graduates at City College of San Francisco.
This document discusses the third report on high school graduates attending the City College of San Francisco (CCSF), focusing on students between fall 2000 and spring 2001. Report highlights include: (1) 53% of San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) students placed into college-level English courses--higher than previous years for SFUSD students but lower than other students in general; (2) 15% of SFUSD students placed into college-level mathematics courses--higher than previous reports have found but equivalent to other students in general; (3) of SFUSD English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) students, 11% placed into college-level ESL courses, a lower percentage than years before; (4) current SFUSD students took a heavier load of units (10.37 versus 10.17) compared with previous years, yet a lower GPA was found (average of 2.16 versus 2.19); (5) differences narrowed between SFUSD and other students, with percent of units passed being virtually the same; (6) the performance of SFUSD students and private San Francisco high school students was equivalent; (7) when examining the persistence of performance from fall to spring, data showed that 80% of SFUSD students re-enrolled, equivalent to previous years; and (8) SFUSD students had higher GPAs and percentage of units passed than students from private SF high schools.
